If I'm wearing a full face of makeup then I will probably have contoured the shit out of my cheeks. I've got a potato face and I know it. That being said, the Ilamasqua gel sculpt in silouhette is perfect for those that are either new to contouring, want a natural shadow or want their cheeks to be so cut that this is their base contour. I admit that it looks extremely intimidating in the stick, but as soon as you put it onto your face it blends like a dream. You can blend it with your fingers, a brush or a sponge for an equally beautiful finish. It also layers perfectly if you want a more striking look. If you swipe the product directly onto your face it has a lovely cooling sensation that I can really get onboard with. So much so that I can get a little overboard and end up looking like I've spent a month in the Caribbean. Jokes, I don't tan. Pasty Irish skin. But you get the picture.
If you want to see my favourite way to apply this product then watch this video by Jamie Genevieve. I thought it was mental at first but it works so well! I used this technique in the photo below to create some natural dimension to my cheeks and forehead. Please, please, please try this product if you're scared on contouring. It's a breeze!
